I will summarize current open issues in the acceleration and transport of Galactic cosmic rays, and analyse the implications for the transition from Galactic to extragalactic cosmic rays. Special emphasis will be given to the role of non-linear effects induced by cosmic rays for transport both inside accelerators and in the Galaxy.

Because of the non-detection of primordial gravitational waves, our universe has just gotten a bit simpler. I discuss how this comes about within the theory of inflation and how conformal symmetry comes to play an increasingly important role. An astounding fact about our universe is that the spatial distribution of anything we have observed on large scales seem to originate from a single...
